The Fishman Rare Earth Single Coil Pickup

Many players feel that the Single Coil is the most natural sounding Rare Earth pickup. Its brilliance and articulation appeal to those who prefer single coil sound. Battery life is rated at 300 hours.
Fishman waited years to introduce a magnetic pickup that they felt was god enough to the Fishman name. They think you'll agree that the Rare Earth was worth the wait. The first thing you notice about the Rare Earth is just how easily and cleanly it installs in your guitar. The pickup's low profile design ensures that both your picking style and the guitar's acoustic tone are not affected. To reduce the weight and improve the performance of the pickup, Fishman uses tiny, yet powerful, neodymium pole-piece magnets, precisely voiced for balanced natural sound, with bronze or phosphor bronze strings. Plug in the pickup and you'll hear the brilliant acoustic quality that has changed so many people's minds about soundhole pickups.

Comments about Fishman Rare Earth Single-Coil Soundhole Guitar Pickup:

I'm a professional guitarist with 50 years experience playing. Recently, my wife bought me a new acoustic for Christmas. The problem? It didn't have a pickup. I caught this at a great price. Even with that, it wouldn't be a great deal if the pickup sounded like garbage. Well, I can happily report that I find this pickup to have very natural sound with very little single coil buzz. There is some hum, of course. It is a single coil pick up after all. But even recording in front of my computer monitor, I found the hum to be very low and acceptable. I haven't used it on stage yet, but see no problems doing so. Installation on my Great Divide OM was easy. I didn't even have to take off the strings. Fishman definitely has a winner on it's hands with this one.

Comments about Fishman Rare Earth Single-Coil Soundhole Guitar Pickup:

I expected some hum from a single-coil but YIKES! I can't even use this thing. I have Strats, Telecasters etc. so I can deal with a reasonable amount but this thing's a serious dud.

Comments about Fishman Rare Earth Single-Coil Soundhole Guitar Pickup:

I've got a Martin D-15 and did not want to lose the beautiful sound it omits, but also wanted to be able to record and play at a live event. I went to Fishman to help it out and it delivered! It provides a rich sound, not losing the tone what-so-ever. Amazing.
